Question #1: (B)
785.63 -57.00 -125.00 +57.25 = 660.88

Question #2: (B)
56.75 - 5.00 - 13.25 = 38.5
(The balance the bank reported minus the two uncleared checks gives the true balance on March 15)
His (checkbook balance) on March 20 was 87.37 - 38.50 gives the answer of 48.87 deposited

Question #3: (A)
3950 * 1.06 = 4187
(The price times 106% - the cost of the bike plus the 6% tax)

Question #4 (D)
3 * 1.93 * 1.05 = 6.0795 which is rounded to 6.08

Question #5 (D)
(40*6) + (6.5 * 9) + (8*12) = 394.50
regular + overtime + holiday

Question#6 (C)
(250*0.05 *10) + (250*0.08*3) = 185.00

OH...phone call - I'll be back in a second with the rest of them
